Gift packaging - A Gift that gives back
Every band comes in its own drawstring fabric pouch together with a planting certificate for your 10 trees. You address your certificate personally (by hand) which explains how your trees combat global warming to help people and animals alike. There is also a gift card on which you can write a personal message, the back of which tells you all about Koalas and why they are endangered.
Your bracelet & care
The tempered glass beads will hold their colours in water although they should not be exposed to perfumes, chemicals, cosmetics and the like. The 24K gold plated beads should be treated like all gold jewellery (see care guide).
Your order will be processed within 2 business days of receipt. Shipments are tracked and details for the delivery service you choose are shown on checkout.
Koalas are very contrary animals! They are not bears, they are ‘marsupials’ - animals who carry their young in a belly-pouch, and baby Koalas are called Joeys. Koalas are native to Australia and they don't drink ('Koalas' is actually the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders' word meaning 'no drink'), and the food they eat, gum leaves, are poisonous! Laws forbid them from being kept as pets anywhere in the world because of their diet, still, there is little point as they sleep up to 22 hours a day!
There used to be millions of Koalas and its thought could be as few as 43,000 left today. Despite being ‘vulnerable’ to extinction there aren’t any laws in force protecting their environment although many are trying to help.
Your band creates jobs for the artisans who made it, and jobs for people who planted your trees; your trees provide a home for animals & recycle CO2 to combat global warming. We can't do this without you, in William Shakespeare's words,'Thanks. And thanks and ever thanks. . . '
Just a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us in 2023 - thank you, thank you, thank you B x
